I challenge any skeptics out there to read the Bible for themselves...the whole Bible! Once you do share what you have read with others...what did the Bible say to you personally? Ask them,"What does the Bible mean to you?"REMEMBER....GOD'S WORD does not go out void! PRAISE GOD! GOD'S WORD spoke to me a number of years ago and I am thankful to have the peace and hope of having the LORD JESUS CHRIST as my Savior. HE is longing to have you come to HIM also! JESUS is the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE! HIS WORD is LIFE to me! To me the Bible is the Holy WORD of GOD. It is GOD breathed. It is what nourishes and sustains me in this difficult world. The Bible tells me WHO GOD is. The Bible shows me WHO I belong to. The Bible reveals to me just how valuable I am to GOD. You are valuable to GOD too! The Bible shows me exactly what JESUS CHRIST did for me and you on the Cross.Salvation is of the LORD and comes from the LORD. It is a free gift. Isaiah spoke of JESUS in the Old Teatament book of Isaiah 53.I challenge you to look up Isaiah 53...read it...and honestly ask GOD to reveal truth to you. Can you really explain it away simply? The similarities of what Isaiah mentioned about the Messiah and JESUS CHRIST? As you read GOD'S WORD I pray that HE would open your heart and mind to the truth of the hope that we have in JESUS CHRIST! May GOD BLESS you!

As I read my Bible this morning I was thankful for the privilige to read it without fear of imprisonment or death. I know that sounds harsh, however...how often do we take for granted that book that sits on our shelf or coffee table! There are places in the world where Christians are not so blessed. They have to hide the WORD of GOD. They cannot openly read their Bible. How thankful should we be that we can read GOD'S WORD out in the open if we choose?! What a blessing and a gift from GOD! So when will you open GOD'S WORD to see all that HE has for you?! Will you choose to begin at the beginning? GENESIS 1:1 In the beginning GOD...Will you jump right to the Gospels? JESUS said to her," I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in ME, though he may die,he shall live.And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die. JOHN 11:25 JESUS promises everlasting LIFE with HIM! Will you go to the book of Daniel to read about Daniel's friends? Do you know who Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah are? What about the lion's den?! Will you read Revelation? I will give you a clue..JESUS IS VICTORIOUS! PRAISE GOD! PRAISE GOD! Open GOD'S WORD now! TODAY! There is a plan and a purpose in GOD'S loving WORD! HE has a plan for your life so that you should not perish and if you trust in JESUS CHRIST as your SAVIOR already ...be encouraged by HIS LIVING WORD! Open GOD'S WORD and trust in HIM alone for your future and your hope! Don't look to this world for help, you will not find it.GOD IS IN CONTROL OF ALL THINGS! IT IS TO HIM THAT WE SHOULD LOOK TO FOR OUR STRENGTH AND FOR HELP AND HOPE! HE is a loving and merciful GOD WHO has given us a glimpse into HIS heart by giving us HIS WORD! I encourage you to read GOD'S WORD today! You will find TRUTH there! May GOD bless you!

What a blessing to have GOD'S WORD available to us at any time . All we have to do is open up the bible! What does GOD have for you? What does HE want for you? How does HE feel about you? Where would HE have you go? How would HE have you serve HIM? What has HE already done for you? So many questions! What are the answers?! Will you be brave enough to see what they are?!Open HIS WORD to see the beautiful promises of GOD FOR YOU! May you be blessed as you read HIS WORD! Search the scriptures to see how GOD does have a plan and purpose for your life! PRAISE GOD that HE draws us near to HIM! PRAISE GOD that HE has given us HIS WORD to get to know HIM better! PRAISE GOD!
